Cabaret (or cabaret-type) shows in Paris suitable for ~12-yo girls?

Jump to last reply

My mother and I are traveling to Paris for a week in June with my 11.5yo niece and my 12.5yo daughter.

I suggested attending an opera or ballet while in Paris. She thinks a cabaret (with can-can dancing) would be preferable, since we have world-class opera and ballet in our nearby city (where we've frequently taken the girls to symphony, though not opera or ballet).

I've researched a little about cabarets and it's not clear to me that there are appropriate shows for ~12-yo girls. Note that these are not prudish girls - they have been raised by freethinkers - but they are unaccustomed to nudity outside their immediate family. Basically, "traditional" cabaret is my mom's idea of experiencing Paris - I'm not sure about it.

I know there are many children's performances in Paris, as there are in other major cities. We don't want to pack our itinerary with French-language performances - the girls are more art-oriented and they have only rudimentary French. We are planning to attend at least one marionette show in one of the parks (Luxembourg or Buttes Chaumont are those I've seen mentioned).

I welcome any recommendations for unique performances that English-speaking ~12-yo girls would enjoy.

Opinions? Suggestions?

Thanks so much for any input!
